Contemporary Australian Artist
For Narrm-based contemporary artist Katie Eraser, emotion is at the core of how art conveys our experience of being in the world. Her work is strewn with private and embodied expressions of lust, loss, and longing, which speaks to her lived reality, and queer ideology. Eraser imbues abstract erotic imagery with musings of flowers, female and GNC bodies, and fruit. Interested in expressing language and conversation within her works, each can be viewed as a record of the intricacy and liberation of living queer. Distinctly divergent dialogues play out across the canvas, intuitively deliberate strokes clashing with unconscious mark making.
“My intention is to immerse my story in dialogue with queer creative peers to engage with lost parts of myself, never allowed the opportunity to blossom until later in life.”
